“This place just keeps getting better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We have been staying at least once a year at the Shore House for the last 8-9 years. We love Lake Tahoe and we don't think there's a better place to stay. Sure, there's a Ritz, Hyatt and Resort at Squaw Valley, but you can't beat the location and service you'll receive at the Shore House. Marty is so attentive to help out with whatever you may need. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfasts and happy hours are delicious and every day we end it with a soak in the hot tub that literally sits on the lake. It really can't get any better. We usually travel in winter for skiing but have also enjoyed the Shore House in the summer when there's so much to do and the property is beautiful with flowers and stunning views. Every time we come home, we miss it. Marty and the Shore House have created many great memories for us.

Room Tip: We love the Lakeview room or Terrace Room. The Lakeview has a little better view but the Terrace ro...

We have stayed in many fine B&B's over the years and Marty's property is absolutely one of the best. He is the most gracious and hands on innkeeper we have encountered, and that added greatly to our enjoyment of the stay.

We stayed four wonderful nights.

The location is perfect - right on the lake. The rooms are immaculate and capture the essence of Lake Tahoe's ambiance. The breakfasts are off the charts delicious. The afternoon wine and appetizers are superb! Just the view of the lake as you have breakfast is worth the stay, and when you come back at 5 for wine, the sunsets over the water are spectacular. Throw in the river rock fireplace in that intimate breakfast room and you are hooked!

The location is convenient to major ski resorts - Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine, and not that far from Heavenly. Truckee, Reno, and Carson City are all easy drives.

We don't go out of our way to find fault or critique the places we stay, but if we did, Shore House would be rated as near perfect. We were absolutely pleased and will be back.

Room Tip: They are all great!

Great location situated on the north shore of Lake Tahoe at Vista Tahoe, in between both Northstar and Squaw Valley resorts.

A great location for skiing, snowboarding during winter, we also spent a morning snow shoeing at Mount Rose which had fabulous views over the lake.

The Shore House at Lake Tahoe has a reputation for its breakfasts and afternoon drinks & snacks. Hospitality was great with Marty and Barb ensuring you are made to feel extremely welcome.

I would definitely consider staying here again, whether during the winter season or even at other times as the location has so much to offer.

We stayed here for 2 days, Dec 25-27. Marty gave us a perfectly intimate wedding with all the elements included--flowers, cake, and Korbel for the wedding toast! The Pine Room was spacious enough for two with a whirlpool tub and 2 rubber duckies. I slept great on the memory foam mattress and it kept us toastie warm. The dining area had snacks, many flavors of tea, and coffee available 24 hours. Strong Wi-Fi signal in our room. The massage we received was of excellant quality with therapuetic qualities! (Thanks again Travise and Lee) Everything we wanted was but a request away, reservations for dinner, and ideas for recreation.

Our room was immaculate with every detail you can imagine taken care of. The owner obviously has a lot of pride in his place. Its a wonderful place for couples of course--quiet and serene. Its close to a lot of restaurants, and its easy to get to Reno, Truckee or other various areas pretty easily.

A great location if you are looking for some peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. Opa's room is compact but has everything you need for a great stay
Marty gave us great advice on what to see - the salmon spawning at Taylor Creek was amazing. And he does great breakfasts!

We stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage & it was terrific! Taylor is so sweet and makes delicious baked goods! Enjoyed the breakfasts & the wine and appetizer hour was perfect! Marty was a wonderful host, even though we aren't SF Giants fans :) I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for a small, personal place to stay in a beautiful location...definitely God's country!
